Dave Sullivan

Business Development Consultant

The guy with connections and a passion to make business happen.

A rare (and admirable) distinction, Dave was the first shareholder to hold the title without the letters CPA after his name. Previously our Director of Business Development, Dave is a man about town and few in the business community don’t know him. His marketing and business smarts combined with wit and charm, make him a great asset to any meeting or project. Harkening back to his days as a network TV talent, Dave is regularly sighted at a podium emceeing an event, networking in the community or attending a nonprofit organization board meeting or fundraiser.

After careers in TV journalism, media production, and consulting, we were thrilled to land this Duck in our pond back in 2001. Dave’s been landing business for Perkins ever since. Our only complaint: don’t bother looking for him in the office very often.  He can’t go anywhere in this town without running into someone who wants to stop and chat. Starbucks should charge him rent.
